Tuscany - Tavarnelle
Location and Surrounding Area
Immersed in the peaceful Tuscan countryside and situated in the heart of Chianti, this exclusive property is ideally located to offer complete privacy to its guests and to explore the region’s cultural highlights and most spectacular natural wonders. Enjoying a privileged position between Siena and Florence, located just outside the pretty hamlet of Tavarnelle Val di Pesa, Villa Tavarnelle represents the perfect location for day trips to the most beautiful towns in Tuscany and provides a unique opportunity to admire its iconic landscapes while soaking up the region’s incredibly rich historical and cultural heritage.
In less than one hour by car, you can easily reach Florence, famous for being a treasure chest of priceless heritage. The most important sites in Florence include the Duomo, the Baptistery, the Uffizi and the Galleria dell’Accademia. The churches of Santa Maria Novella and Santa Croce are veritable art galleries, while the library of San Lorenzo is a magnificent exhibition of Michelangelo’s architectural genius. Wander some of the most ancient streets in the city until you reach the Arno River, cross the Ponte Vecchio and experience the newest area of Florence, the Oltrarno.
The villa is a few kilometers from Siena, Italy’s loveliest medieval town, whose heart is represented by the magnificent Piazza del Campo, scene of the lively Palio horse race, which is held twice a year in July and August. The Campo is dominated by the Palazzo Pubblico and its Torre del Mangia, from which it is possible to admire the view of the town. Effectively a giant, open-air museum celebrating the Gothic, Siena boasts spiritual and secular monuments that have retained both their medieval forms and their exceptional art collections, providing plenty to marvel at.
Pisa, exceptionally well-known for its famous Leaning Bell Tower, is one hour from the villa. After having climbed all the steps up to the top of the tower to admire the breathtaking view of the town, continue your visit to other monuments in the marvelous Piazza dei Miracoli, such as the Cathedral, the Baptistery and the Monumental Cemetery. The villa is also less than an hour and a half’s drive from Lucca, also known as “the city of 100 churches”: hidden behind imposing Renaissance walls, its cobbled streets, delightful piazzas and shady promenades make it a perfect destination to explore on foot.
